I will keep this first post updated when I reach new personal records and weight gains and stuff like that

Basic Information

*Weight - 200lbs
*Bodyfat - I am not sure. I would take a guess at 15%
*age - 16, born december 28th to give you a reference on how old I really am. [/COLOR]

Maximum lifts
*Bench - 270
*Squat - 345
*dead - No clue I've yet to max out.

I'll take my maxes again the week before school starts up again because I'll know all my friends that know I'm in to lifting will be curious to see if I've improved.

I started lifting second semester in 9th grade. I was dumb and pretty much only did upper body till second semester in 10th grade when I stalled at 250 on my bench. I was just doing a dumb pyramid routine for my bench 3 times a week. I got serious and started deadlifting, rowing, and squatting, second semester. I've been doing 5x5 but had to stop because of tendinitis from playing baseball. I'm now going to follow Iron Addict's simple power based routine and going to stick with it for as long as possible.

My goals

My goal's are to increase strength. I don't care much about size. All though it would be nice to get bigger, it will just be an additional plus for me. My goal is to get strong enough to start competing in under 19 power lifting competition meets. I still think I have a while to go though.

Monday July 13th, 2009

Squat: 280 2x5, 225 1x5

Pull though: 32.5 3x10

Bent row: 125 4x6

Dumbell Curl: 30x8

Calf raises (machine): 115 3x15

Notes: My first workout after vacation. so I went lighter. I did over warm up with squats though and had to drastically reduce the weight for my last set. This was actually my first time doing pull troughs and they felt great 32.5 was very easy I just wanted to go light because I'm sure my form is not down 100% yet and I do not want to risk a back injury. I wish I could of done pull though sooner.

Mood: I was pretty excited to workout again after 3 weeks from my tendinitis and vacation and the new workout. I was highly motivated.

Notes: Horrible workout. I left my straps at home and my sweaty hands kept making me almost drop the bar when doing deadlifts. I had 3x5 in me but could only really do 3x3 because if I tried to get a fourth set I would of dropped the bar for sure.
